Where are we going today?

All aboard...it's time to see Norfolk from a completely different point of view on the Victory Rover!

Victory Rover Naval Base Cruises can take your family on a water adventure all about the Hampton River Harbor and Elizabeth River.

The ship can take nearly 150 on a family fun journey of fun facts and great views. The climate controlled main cabin has super large picture windows, so you can be inside or outside to enjoy the view of Norfolk moving past.

The top deck has a large amount of shade too, so you get the best of both worlds!

The Victory Rover also has refreshments, souvenirs, and comfortable seating - so it might be like a home away from home!

The cruise route will take you past some pretty special sights of the city. You will spot the Portsmouth Naval Hospital, the Shipyards, and the Norfolk Naval Station  the World's LARGEST Naval Base! 

This Naval Station is home to Aircraft Carriers, Assault Ships, Submarines, and Destroyers - so it's pretty important to the maritime history! (And they make for a great experience for your cruise!

Those ship loving children will love cruising past all of the harbor traffic, too, including tugboats, commercials ships, and barges. 

The Victory Rover Naval Base is an education for you too, because the Captain offers you his expert narration over the sound system as you make your way past the sights. You can't ever learn enough fun facts!

Have a family water adventure in Norfolk - aye aye Captain!

    Very bad experience. I saw many good reviews before I went but it turned out be a very disappointing experience.

    20 minutes into the cruise, the ship returned to port because of a weather warning. We understood this was about safety but when later the warning was cancelled, the cruise did not resume. The captain was rude and impatient. He basically just want to kick everyone out of the ship as soon as possible to call it a day. The cruise ended 40 minutes early than planned and the biggest ship we saw was USS Wisconsin, which is right there at...Read More

    This was an excellent cruise! It was very reasonably priced and the tour guide was very informative. The rest of the crew was very nice and helpful. They have a nice variety of snacks on board. Also, you can find a $4 off coupon in the Passport to Savings coupon book.

The cruise ended 40 minutes early than planned and the biggest ship we saw was USS Wisconsin, which is right there at downtown Norfolk.

Customers were treated like crap. A guy was late and the crew let his wife and children wait near the gate for him When the scheduled leaving time is close, the captain came and rudely pushed the woman away so that he could close the gate. Funny the husband was running to the ship and the captain just ignored him. When people asked him to wait, the captain said "that's not my problem!"

So we did leave on time but the children were crying because their daddy couldn't get on the ship.

It was ironic how he decided to leave on time with paid customer not boarded and cut the trip short when he felt like it.

Hey Cap, a customer's problem is your problem.
